Kick On talks to students of all ages about how to overcome adversities that life can throw at you and positive coping strategies to build resilience through inspiring personal stories from one of our amazing ambassadors.
Coming of age as a young man in today’s world has never been so challenging. We are bombarded in the media with so many harmful messages around toxic masculinity, and unhealthy examples of manhood. Mainstream advertising, media, movies, music videos and even pornography all play a role in conditioning us to view masculinity through a negative lens. Leaving us to feel confused around the concept of manhood and what it means to be a man in todays world.
In this lesson we deconstruct what it means to be a man, whilst looking at how we came to see masculinity through the lens of toxic and destructive. Furthermore we look at reconstructing healthy transitions into manhood and the importance of understanding themselves to be a better man in society.
Our intention is to develop a self defined understanding of what it means to be a man in today's world.
